About

The BWHazel Web API is a set of RESTful web services offering functionality seen within my web sites to others to use in their own sites and apps. They offer output data in JSON and XML and are therefore universal across all platforms. Information and documentation on the services are provided on this site; use the Info and API links above respectively.

Please note that this site is still in beta therefore content and functionality could change at any time. I shall aim to avoid large changes to the services; ancy changes will be posted on this site in advance.
